About Deanie Burris
Born and raised right here in Tucson. We have raised our 3 children and now have 4 beautiful grandchildren. I designed the casita in 2003 in a way that would be functional, enjoyable and as private as possible for our guests to enjoy. I own and operate a local banquet hall & wedding chapel and have also been in the real estate business for nearly 20 years. I enjoy both jobs and meeting new people. In my spare time I play volleyball whenever possible.
Deanie Burris purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Deanie Burris chose Sunset Manor
This property is very convienent to just about everything anyone would need but because it shares a 1.3 acre lot with the main house it feels like it is in a very rural setting and you get the true feeling of living in the desert without being too far from town. Located less than a mile from major shopping, dining, cinemas and more. Bring your best friend and take long walks on the paved streets.
What makes this Villa unique
Gorgeous desert surroundings with daily visits from quail, rabbits, sometimes a bobcat or javelin and beautiful Catalina mountain and sunset views. Totally detached casita with its own driveway and privately fenced yard.

Beautiful house, location, landscapes, and easy access to anywhere in Tucson
Casa Del Sol is a tiny super fun house located in the desert's foothills. We liked it so much that we rented it first in May 2016 while presenting at a scientific conference, and then again in April 2018. Sit on the balcony and enjoy the orange sunset, bunnies, and bats. A huge Walmart as well as Safeway, plus numerous local restaurants and services nearby and easily accessible by car. Go visit the downtown zoo or the Desert Museum--both very entertaining. Mexican food around is obviously genuine and so good. The owner Deanie will help you with anything you need and is easily reachable anytime.
1 Bdr Casita was Perfect
I actually stayed in owner's 1-bdr casita for about 5 weeks. Everything was perfect. It was immaculately clean and I never saw any desert critters (e.g. Scorpions). The casita was very spacious with a nice tv, sectional sofa, comfortable bed, washer/dryer, gas grill, covered patio, and fenced pet area. Very ample parking right out the front door. Owner very non-intrusive, yet responsive. My gas grill tank ran out of gas and she replaced it within hours. Casita came well stocked with the reasonable request that you leave it stocked for the next guest. I highly recommend the 1 bdr if you and maybe one other guest are staying in Tucson. Small pets considered with approval (I brought my 8-pound hypoallergenic yorkie with me). The casita is located in an established neighborhood-type area very convenient to shopping, grocery stores, entertainment, and I-10. Advanced payment was easy via PayPal.
Perfect for what we needed
We needed a place to stay while we found our retirement home in Tucson. This VRBO fit the bill, particularly since we have two mature beagles. We looked at many properties in this NW area, but, of course, we found our new home on the NE side. All of the amenities were present and in working order as described. It is older and there can be improvements, but overall it is a well-maintained property. Deanie really gives you privacy even though she's next door, but when we needed her, she responded. The air conditioning went out during a heat wave in May, of course on a weekend, but Deanie had her busy repairman there and it was fixed in a few hours. Great customer service! Our only real complaint was finding some dirty dishes in the cabinets and a dirty BBQ (that was almost brand new). This falls to the previous renters and not the owner as I can see how these could be easily missed during a interim cleaning. We would definitely recommend this VRBO.
Modern spacious casita in a good location
The owner has two casitas at this location adjacent to her home. We inquired about the 2 bdrm unit but were informed of the newly opened and larger 1 bdrm unit. It was great and had everything we desired. Laundry facility right inside the spacious bathroom, comfy bedroom with large closets, and a great room with dining, office and TV/music areas. The covered patio with gas grill provided many a pleasant dining experience. And the view to the east is great. It is in a good neighborhood for walking, and many stores and restaurants are nearby. Highly recommended.
Colorful little house in the desert
My partner, brother, and I stayed a week in May 2016 in Casa Del Sol and were delighted by the experience. The house is charming, with bright southwest colors and simple yet effective design. It was perfectly clean and all ready for us when we arrived. The location is wonderful – basically in the Sonoran desert in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to various stores, restaurants, parks, and gardens; downtown Tucson is only 25m away. Make sure to take a walk around the house at sunset – you’ll see beautiful cacti as well as bats flying and bunnies running. Also visit the desert museum in the Saguaro National Park. We highly recommend Casa Del Sol.
A great retreat in Tucson
This is an excellent retreat for a stay in Tucson. It is accessible to main roads, quiet, well maintained and has everything a visitor needs. It added so much to our stay and we were able to relax and enjoy what Tucson had to offer. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Additional information about rental rates
We would prefer payment by check vs. credit card but understand if that is your only option. Great location! Feel like your in a rural area when your actually blocks away from shopping, dining and more. Get the true feel of living in the desert with views of the cottontails, coyote, quail, bobcats & Javelina's traveling through. (They are fun to see, but never get close enough to worry about) I have lived in this area for 25+ years although my grandparents lived here for 30 before that. Its a very safe area and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
